Healthy Quirks

Okay I’m no health expert or doctor so lets get that clear. I’m just stating what has worked for me in the past and still does till this day. I came across this information by working in a spice warehouse. The owner is a wealthy and wise man who i viewed as a mentor. He, of course introduced me to the spice world and went into detail on how they can be used. I applied some of those practices to my life and have benefited from them immensely.

Healthy Benefits of Red Pepper Cayenne

Capsaincin is an active component of chili peppers which are plants belonging to the genus Capsaicum. This same Capsaicin reduces the platelet aggregation factor, which is often responsible for the onset of migraine headaches by restricting circulation in your head. Is believed to bring headache relief by depleting Substance P, a neurotransmitter that helps send pain signals. Most studies suggest that the capsaicin needs to be applied topically, such as diluting it with water then swabbing the inside of your nose, in order to be effective.

2. Reduce Appetite &

The hot and spicy taste of cayenne pepper comes from capsaicin, a compound found in many hot peppers.

Research suggests that after eating foods with capsaicin, the body’s metabolic rate ( our energy use) can increase 15 to 20 percent for up to two hours. Other studies show capsaicin also boost fat oxidation, allowing the body to better use fat as fuel.

It works by decreasing the mucus in your nasal passages, making it easier to breathe.

Capsaicin, the main active constituent of cayenne pepper, has a numbing effect when used topically, which helps in providing instant relief from joint pain.
